My vote go's to these guys. They are super mellow guys and are super cool to talk to. They for sure make you feel like you are a valued customer instead of just another phone call that the sales agent wants to rush thru to get to the next caller or sale....LOL They have a ton of knowledge in the industry and don't try and sell you misc BS. If you haven't already then I suggest you try these guys out. Either way here is too good gardens for 2012! :animbong:
I use Hortilux 1000 watt super hps as a yard stick and easy way to compare apples to apples. Hydrolife website above wants 129 for a bulb. The hydroponics.net 99 for same bulb. Have not checked others mentioned yet but will do so and post results.
be careful of greners, i order a tent from them and the experience wasn't all that great. when i called them to rectify the issue i was told to send it back (at this point i opted to get my money back), and if i decided to do so i would have to pay a 20% restocking fee plus shipping fee to send the tent back to them. if you want you can try http://www.plantlightinghydroponics.com/. they are much better than greners imho, depending where you live.
Anybody ever deal with growace? they have some really low prices on there light kits. If anyone knows anything about their products can you comment?
I'm looking into investing in a couple 600 watt kits and for the price I cant beat it. www.growace.com If I were to use a good bulb in the 600 watt air cooled system do you think it would be a decent set up. I looked but couln't find much product info or reviews. thanx.
